Iglesias doesn't look great. Probably shouldn't have used him to close out a 4 run game last night after pitching the night before.

That felt like a pretty huge win. Especially after emptying the bullpen. You don't want to take an L in a game like this.

Yea, not sure on the thought process there. Have to figure he is not gonna be available now for the next two nights. Getting this first game though was huge.

Hopefully Fried channels his inner Maddux and goes CG on 95 pitches tomorrow night. Or tonight? I hate west coast games…

Not bad for 100k signing.

Great start for Fried. Johnson would have been out of the inning with better defense.

Didn't get to stay up to watch the game. Good win and highly encouraging with Fried pitching like he did!

Elder walks Barnes to load the bases so he can pitch to Mookie. He gets him down 0-2, then Mookie hits a soft tapper down the line that Riley (smartly) let go foul. Elder then gets Mookie looking.

Acuna hit a ball a ballizon miles per hour to the moon for his 3rd home run of the series.

Bats just cannot get anything going. Olson coming up after a pitching change in the 9th with two outs. Sure would be nice for him to get #44 here.

ETA: Olson just missed one, got under it a little. Headed to bottom of the 9th tied 1-1.

Free baseball. Tonkin with a perfect 9th, punctuated by striking out Mookie looking.

What a ball game. Braves win, clinching this series and the season series over the Dodgers. Win #90 and now opened up a 7 game lead for the best record in the NL and a 16 game lead in the East.

Uncle Charlie on the mound tomorrow for a potential sweep.

Soroka up for a start but has given up a couple of Homer's.

And a drunk fan runs on the field. Apparently lost both shoes and his hat before the security guards piled on.

When I was a kid (early 80s) Morgana ran onto the field at the Astrodome. Everyone knew who she was, and people started taking pictures.

Surely my Redbirds can't blow this lead?!?

Soroka and McHugh to the IL. Vines and Heller back up.

Man, that stinks for Soroka. I hope it isn't anything more than minor setback.

Not a great start to this game…

Man, what the heck? Take 3 out of 4 from the Dodgers in LA to getting run out of your own park to the last place red birds.

Guess "that's the way baseball go." Get all that stuff out the way now…

Mostly hurts Strider in the Cy Young race. Glad Acuna got a hit at the end to break his hitless streak.

The Cards have had plenty of offense this season, BTW. The front office failed miserably in the offseason to address the team's pitching needs, and the pitching has been brutal.

Wainwright is 42 and he looks it. His last outing was good, but his season has been dismal. I expect the Braves to win big tonight.

Enjoying the broadcast, but it's kind of bizarre hearing color from a guy who sounds Australian to me. His first name is Peter I believe.

Still a much better broadcast than the Cardinals.

Peter Moylan. He was a RP for the Braves.

You mean you don't like Chip Carey?

Acuna has hit two today. Now at 34. Hope he can create the 40/70 club.

He just missed having a 3-HR night.

Chip comes across as completely artificial. He's certainly not a bad play-by-play man, but he comes across (to me, at least) as the opposite of real.

Brad Thompson is doing color for this series, and he's a lightweight. Cardinals broadcasts are much better during the series that Jim Edmonds does color. Been in Missouri for ten years, and it's still weird to me that they Cards broadcasts aren't better than they are.

Listening to Chip now is weird and artificial to me, because I only know him as a Braves homer, so understand how you feel.
